If you do not work on your self-esteem level there can be adverse effects on your body.

4. Your brain becomes uninspired

The problem of low self-worth can make you stop doing things you love doing simply because you feel that you are not good enough to do them anymore. Lack of confidence in your abilities can make you uninspired; hence, you will notice that you no longer take part in your favorite pastimes and hobbies.

5. You’re often angry at yourself and others

This is because; the problem of low self-worth can not only make you feel upset in yourself but also angry for not being who you wanted to be. Most importantly also is the fact that, when you are frustrated with yourself, you are most likely to get sulky with others.
